About this service.
This "meta-server" gateway to various third-party programs/servers for
protein structure prediction, has been developed in the Bujnicki
laboratory in IIMCB, Warsaw, Poland. The credit for all programming goes
to Michal Kurowski. We are grateful to developers of protein structure
prediction services, whose publicly available servers and programs have
been included in our meta-server - this service would not be possible
without them. We thank the protein structure prediction community for
inspiration, stimulation, and constructive criticism. We also thank
those involved in development of the zope
and mysql projects for
providing the tools that allowed us to create this service.
There are at least three other similar services we know about, developed
Burkhard Rost, Leszek Rychlewski and
Each of the four meta-servers, including ours, is different. Each offers
some options not available elsewhere. In our meta-server, we put the
emphasis on careful processing of user-defined multiple sequence alignments
and generation and assessment of preliminary 3D models based on fold-recognition
alignments. We have also added prediction of transmembrane helices.
Last, but not least, we offer secure connection and data transfer.
Please don't hesitate to contact us ( Janusz Bujnicki
for all scientific matters, Lukasz Kozlowski
for all technical matters) if you have any questions about our meta-server.
